This Week Marks the 100th Anniversary of Be Kind to Animals Week, Help Us Celebrate!

During the first week of May each year, we celebrate Be Kind to Animals Week. This year marks the 100th Anniversary of this very special occasion, and we’re excited to spend this week going the extra mile for animals in need. While we know our supporters are “kind” to animals year-round, we wanted to share a few ways to get involved now:

Join Team ASPCA to Help Animals in Need: "Create a personal ASPCA fundraising page for an important event in your life and share it with your friends and family. Whether you donate your birthday, honor the memory of a beloved pet or decide to run a 5K with Team ASPCA, the money you raise can make a big difference for animals in need nationwide.

Volunteer at Your Local Shelter: From walking dogs to fundraising, there are tons of ways you can get involved with your local animal shelter. Use our shelter finder  to find a shelter or rescue group near you.

Adopt a Pet: There are countless dogs and cats across the country who are waiting to find loving homes. If you’ve considered adding a furry friend to your family, now may be the perfect time to visit your local shelter! Visit our Adopt section to find available dogs and cats in your area.

Sign Up for the ASPCA Advocacy Brigade: When you join the Advocacy Brigade, you’ll receive important alerts from the ASPCA. We’ll contact you when we need your help fighting for laws against animal cruelty.

Thanks for helping animals in need this week, and every week.
